More About the Author

No matter what anyone claims, writers are made, not born, and what and how they write is the result of just how they were made... or how they made themselves. I began by writing poetry, which was published only in small magazines, and then went on to write administrative reports while I was a U.S. Naval aviator, followed by research papers, speeches, economic and technical studies, and policy and briefing papers. Along the way, I've been a delivery boy; a lifeguard; an unpaid radio disc jockey; a U.S. Navy pilot; a market research analyst; a real estate agent; director of research for a political campaign; legislative assistant and staff director for U.S. Congressmen; Director of Legislation and Congressional Relations for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; a consultant on environmental, regulatory, and communications issues; a college lecturer and writer in residence; and unpaid treasurer of a civic music arts association.

As a result, my writing tends to incorporate all of the above, in addition to the science fiction I read from a very early age. After close to sixty published novels, and perhaps a score of short stories, it's fairly clear to me that "what kind of writer" I am for readers tends to depend on which of my books each reader has read.

Along the way, I've weathered eight children, a fondness for three-piece suits [which has deteriorated into a love of vests], a brown Labrador, a white cockapoo, an energetic Shih-tzu, two scheming dachshunds, a capricious spaniel, a crazy Saluki-Aussie, and various assorted pet rodents. Finally, in 1989, to escape nearly twenty years of occupational captivity in Washington, D.C., I escaped to New Hampshire. There I was fortunate enough to find and marry a lovely lyric soprano, and we moved to Cedar City, Utah, in 1993, where she directs the voice and opera program at Southern Utah University and where I attempt to create and manage chaos in the process of writing.

I struggled to keep going with this book. The politics in this instalment are so thick that it takes away from the action. Most of the exciting action in this book is happening somewhere else because of things the main character puts in motion.

I'm now reading the next book which takes place hundreds of years prior to the first three books in the hopes the action I love modestt for will return. If it doesn't I won't be reading the remainder of this series.

Great series. Some have to come from Canada or the US, but the service is always brilliant. It tends to arrive before the set date. Highly recommend getting these back copies at a reduced price while used but in good condition.

I feel it lacked the impact of books 1/2, perhaps because the story covers to wide
a range of victims, in the previous books he was the victim.
therefore the story was tighter with more action.

Very absorbing story that builds well on the previous series about imagers, providing an insight as to how the Collegium was eventually founded. The lead characters are very believable. The story leads well into Imager's Battalion.
